In October 2009, I visited some of the schools in India financed by DFN and was extremely pleased with the strategic approach implemented to help the Dalit people. There is a huge need and there are limited resources. How to proceed? Schools are truly a long-term, impactful and effective approach by which precious children are educated enabling them with tremendous opportunities that they would never have otherwise. A team of faithful locals are efficiently driving these projects with an inspirational vision. Dalits are so despised in most of India society, that people don’t let the shade of a Dalit person touch them in order not be cursed thereafter. I had the opportunity to shake the little hands of hundreds of children and it was amazing to see their faces instantly illuminated with bright eyes and beautiful wide smiles.

The Great!

I became aware of the Dalit people group a few years ago when a team of women from our church went to India to minister to the Dalit. As a prayer token, I received a small, rough clay cup. It is a sample of what the Dalits are given when they ask for a drink in India. The Dalit are considered sub-human and thought to be filthy, so they are not given a glass like you or I would receive. They are given a clay cup, which is immediately broken after they use it so that no "human" will use it and be "contaminated". This single glimpse into the abuse of the Dalit people broke my heart, and I have prayed for them ever since. A year later, at a church conference I learned of many, many more abuses the Dalits suffer, especially the children, who are often kidnapped or sold into prostitution. I also learned about what the Dalit Freedom Network is doing to alleviate Dalit suffering and to bring them to their rightful place in humanity. It's more than an honor to give to DFN and to know that my dollars are carefully guarded, wisely spent, and will affect the destiny and eternity of a people whose time has come. I have nothing but the greatest respect for Dr. Ana Steele, with whom I was associated through my employer, OneHope. She is one strong woman, and her dogged determination to free the Dalits is inspiring many of us to answer the call to DO something!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the reports I hear back from the field when I get to hear how our prayers and giving are making a difference. I've sponsored friends on missions trips to India, and I co-sponsor a beautiful little girl from India.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

give them the depth and breadth of reach that only more donors will give them.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

being made aware of a beautiful, precious people and their crushing need, in a way that gives me hope for their future and a direct way to help them.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated, purposeful, and driven, yet humble and gracious.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the world by giving freedom to millions who no longer even dare to dream of it.

Ways to make it better...

I could have given more.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the awakening of an apathetic world and a sleepy church to the desperate need of millions, and helping people see it IS our responsibility to the human race and to God to right these wrongs.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I'm grateful that DFN is out there, doing what none of us could do alone. It's such a privilege to come alongside and help them.

I have worked for the Dalit Freedom Network for a few years as a volunteer. I was very frustrated with the fact that the organization had no ideas to share on how I could help the Dalit situation from my home in the US. Every event I had planned and I had to come up with my own ideas. Then I was asked to share these ideas with them and they then became their ideas. I received NO credit for my creative ideas and no recognition at the conference. Although my intentions for volunteering was not for recognition, I feel every volunteer needs some kind of recognition for their efforts. At the conference we learned only what some of the staff was responsible for. We did not get to hear what the other volunteers were doing to raise support. We all gave our ideas on paper. We were promised a copy, which we never received. I love what DFN represents but I hate the fact the staff seems too self involved and forget that they are there for the good of the Dalits. We spent a lot of money for the conference and NO ONE at DFN followed through with anything they promised to help us become more involved. I now work independently for the betterment of the Dalits.

It means a lot to me to be able to enrich the lives of some of the poorest of the poor. DFN provides hope for those who would have none. I love getting letters from the children I support and hearing how they are doing.

Although I am yet to be actively involved in this organisation, being aware of the grave and inhuman treatment the Dalits are suffering in India, I am greatful to Almighty that there are organisations like these who are brave and empathatic enough to stand for them and help them, when 'modern' India is unashamedly brushing the issue under the carpet for as long as they can!

The Great!

What a privilege to be a part of the freedom of a suppressed people group! For thousands of years, they have felt devalued and oppressed and finally an organization has stepped up to speak out for their value as human beings with a strategy to bring them into freedom. And with that... some day, the beautiful country of India will be a better place, a more whole place, as a result.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

going with others to India and working with DFN in schools, teaching Dalit women at conferences of their value and worth.

I first hear about the Dalit freedom network on the radio, and was deeply moved by the stories I heard of the horrific way in which the dalits are treated. Although the caste system was supposedly banned, dalits are still discriminated against, especially in the more rural regions of India. DFN's sponsorship progran is especially meaningful to me. Just looking through the pictures of the thousands of dailt children brought tears to my eyes; they are no different than the many other children in India, and yet they are so poorly treated. I would strongly reccomend the sponsorship program. With just 28 dollars per month, you will change a dailt child's life by supplying them with the educationg they need to fight against discrimination!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The sponsorship provided through DFN is wonderful. Although I have only been sponsoring my child for a year, he has already written me letters; in each letter, often more than once, he thanks me for sponsoring him; I feel I am helping to change his future

I was able to see the fruit of this ministry for myself and was very impressed and encouraged. After my visit our church formalized a partnership with DFN to fuel their work of serving the Dalits.

The Great!

Seeing the fruit of their labors firsthand in Southern India. I was able to visit their schools and see the holistic work of renewal their doing in the Dalit communities.
